My wife and I just loved the professional presentation and demeanor of our Glasgow Tourist Guide, Robert Bowles. Tremendous in-depth knowledge, patience, and humor in good taste distinguish this fine gentleman in this particular industry. He has a win-win approach for any tourist company to hire and reward or any cruiseship passenger (like us) to follow to the various sites.... More

Although a born and bred Glaswegian I had never been on the bus tour, so decided to have a go. Wasn't disappointed. Our guide on one of the buses was Donna who was both informative and gave everyone a very warm welcome. Being able to use our ticket throughout the day enabled us to stop off at interesting areas and... More

Came to glasgow with my fiance. Had never been before and thought that the best way to see everything was on this tour. Cost £14.00 each and was worth every penny. We had a live guide who was very knowledgable and kept us all entertained. Thank you Campbell. The city is lots bigger than I thought and I would thoroughly... More

This was a fab way of seeing Glasgow and also a great way of taking advantage of the free places around the city. Drivers very polite and helpful and if one bus full there was always another one not far behind.

Easily accessible from George Square and covers a wide area. It does give some good information but as someone who knows Glasgow well I feel they missed out a lot. The recorded tour did not highlight a lot of the amazing architecture and buildings of interest. We got offf the bus and the next bus had a real guide and... More

3 of us did this tour even though one was from Glasgow. There was a guide on our bus who was very knowledgable. I think he said that every 3rd bus has a guide, rest use headphones. As we were short of time, we just stayed on for the 2 hours, but would do it again and get off as... More

I had taken this tour because my nephew was here on holiday and was so embarrassed by how awful it was also i found it to be in very bad taste to include the tragic Cluther bar in the tour so soon after the event in which people were killed , that was in my opinion uncomfortable , i thought...

Hadn't been on the tour in years and my partner had never been on it. Was amazed at all the stuff I'd forgotten, and I'm originally from Glasgow. Thought my boyfriend might find it a bit boring but he loved it. Everyone gets their own set of earphones to keep as you can get on and off the buses at... More

I found it difficult to locate the starting poing of the tour, and then had some difficulty in getting the earphones plugged in so I could follow the commentary. I paid £9 for a concessionary ticket which I bought online before my trip. This was important to me because I became worried about missing (what I thought was) the last... More
